6 tips for your first caravan holiday

Whether it’s a weekend beachside getaway with the kids or a national park retreat, your first self-driven adventure can inspire a lifetime of travel and exploration.

Before you hit the road, here are some travel tips to make sure your caravan experience goes perfectly.

Choose your caravan wisely

Make sure the size and amenities are right for your needs. Sunrise Caravans offers a range of new and pre-loved caravans to suit every family size, lifestyle, and destination.

Get to know your caravan

Practise parking, reversing, setting up, and packing down before you head out to save valuable time at your campsite so you can focus on relaxation and enjoying your holiday.

Plan your journey

While riding off into the sunset on a whim is a romantic image, it pays to make sure the route you have planned is accessible for your caravan type. Make sure the drive length and road type are within your ability. Your first holiday is not the time to also try your hand at off-road driving. Also, take the time to make yourself aware of road rules in different states to avoid an unwanted fine.

Pack lightly, but well

A caravan is a confined space, and you don’t want to be falling over unnecessary luggage. However, getting to your sunny destination only to forget the SPF 50+ is not a relaxing start to your holiday! Create an essentials checklist and keep clutter to a minimum.

Check your insurance

Even with the best-laid plans, sometimes things go astray. Confirming with your insurer that both your caravan and tow vehicle are fully covered can save you a headache if you need to make a claim.
